Bebop Spoken There

Brian Harvey: "The exciting day arrived and we [as under age school boys] snuck into the [pub's] rehearsal room, sat awkwardly to attention on hard chairs in a row facing the band and heard our first - very loud - live jazz. What an occasion that was - we even drank beer because we understood that's what jazz people did and that's what the band were drinking." - (Just Jazz June 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

Today

As we all know there are no live gigs taking place in the immediate future. However, any links to jazz streaming that are deemed suitable - i.e. with a professional approach - will be considered for posting.

Farewell to Ottilie Patterson

Legendary jazz singer Ottilie was laid to rest this week in Co Down, it was in complete obscurity. She was 79, and was buried in her native Comber after dying on June 20 in Ayr, Scotland, where she had lived in quiet anonymity for the past 30 years. She rocketed to stardom in the 1950s as a vocalist with the Chris Barber Jazz Band, marrying Chris in 1959 while they were touring and subsequently recording extensively together. Her death has gone unreported in the national media and music Press, mysteriously it seems to have been Ottilie's own wish that there would be no fuss over her death. Obituary.
